Use Of Tools 1945 NAVPERS 10623 PREFACE This book is prepared as a basic reference for those enlisted men of the Navy whose duties require them to use tools to keep Navy gear and equipment in shipshape condition. Familiarity with tools and knowing how to use them is of primary importance to technicians of all rates, for even the most simple routine jobs require the use of tools. Tools are indispensable in the maintenance and repair of Navy equipment, and a technician — whether he is concerned with radio, electricity, ordnance, propulsion machinery, metal work, or woodworking — cannot get along without calling upon his tools for assistance. In this book, tools are arranged in groups according to the kind of work they are designed to perform. The book begins with advice on the handling of such general purpose tools as hammers, screwdrivers, pliers, punches, and wrenches. It explains the use of the tools used for cutting and shaping metal — chisels, hacksaws, files, snips, drills and reamers. Chapters are devoted to threading tools, pipe and tubing tools, woodworking tools, measuring tools, gages and indicators, soldering and welding tools, special tools, metal fastening devices, and abrasives. As one of several Basic Navy Training Courses, this book was prepared in the Training Courses Unit, Standards and Curriculum Division. Training. Bureau of Naval Personnel.
